SOURCE: printer online then offline

Hello,

Had the same problem with my mother's MFC and after 4 hours of troubleshooting I fixed it.

My mother's printer was networked through the router. Here was the solution.

1. Go to printers and faxes.
2. Right click and go to properties.
3. Go to ports (for some reason its shows Brother PC-Fax v2)
4. Add new port.
5. Enter the IP address (check the printer menu to find the IP Address ie. 192.168.002.002. To be safe enter 002 instead of 2.)
6. Restart the computer.

Wait a minute or 2 after restart and the printer should now be online.

Hope this helps you guys.

Is this the initial install? If so do this.. I finally figured this out. Do the "cable" install. After it discovers the printer etc you will get to a screen during the driver part of the install that will ask you how to find the printer. The "recommended" list method is a deadend!  Instead, check the IP address option and input that.. You can get the IP address of the printer from the test page which should have already printed.(Its probably 192.168.2.3).  I run   XP and it solved the problem. I suspect its also the answer for Macs and Vista as well.
I have also had success by doing the "cable" install, then when its done, deleting the printer in Printers and Faxes, then doing a manual install (you still need the IP address).  I am using two computers to go to this printer and it flies. Great speed.

SOURCE: "brother mfc 7840w printer goes offline and i cannot print need turn printer on and off.

The solution, and it took me a long time to find the simple solution, is to right click on your printer, click properties, click the ports tab and click on your Brother printer and click on configure port (or you can delete the existing one and then add another one). What you want to do is update the IP Address. The problem is that the printer does not have a static IP address, it is dynamic. If you want to confirm that, go to your printer and press the reports button and print out the network configuration report. Your IP address will show on that. It's really the last digit in the IP address that changes. This will absolutely solve your problem. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Brother HL-4040CN successfully installed but shows offline

I assume it's turned on and connected to the router.
Sometimes with DHCP, the IP address on the printer will change. I end up going into the router table to see what IP addresses are assigned where. Invariably I'll find my network printer has changed. Find the printer and write it down.

In Windows, Go into Printers> choose the Brother and right click to check Properties. Look for Ports and change the IP address as needed. It will come back online.

Hi,

Go to system settings and select the 'Printer' option.

Right-click on the printer and enable the 'Use Printer Online' function.

Cancel all the printing jobs till that moment and redo the process.

Sometimes the 'Printer Offline' message occurs due to a 'Job Stuck' issue.

Check all network connections and functions.

Be sure the network interfaces work properly.

Turn the printer off and on to see whether the device is working properly.

    Check that the printer is online using the following steps:

    VERIFY THE BROTHER MACHINE IS POWERD ON AND THERE ARE NO ERRORS

    1. If the LCD screen is blank, then the Brother machine is not powerd on the machine to see if it wakes from sleep mode. If it does not, then verify that it is plugged into a working outlet and any power switches are turned to the ON position.
    2. Check the LCD screen for any error messages. An example would be "Paper Jam" or Ink/Toner Empty". If the LCD screen shows an error troubleshoot to clear the isssue indicated.

    CHECK THE PRINTER STATUS

    NOTE : These steps or screens may differ depending on the operating system.
